Huawei, the global technology leader, has today announced that the HUAWEI P40 Pro+ will go on sale in the UK from the 25th of June. First revealed as part of the HUAWEI P40 Series launch in March, the much-anticipated flagship handset will now be available for consumers to buy online.
Anson Zhang, Managing Director of the UK Consumer Business Group, Huawei said: “The HUAWEI P40 Pro+ continues the P Series’ heritage of imaging excellence, thanks to the unique HUAWEI Ultra Vision Sensor, SuperZoom Array, and pro-level cinematic features. The handset also brings ultra-fast speed to consumers with the high-performance Kirin 990 5G Chipset, to connect people and the world around them instantly.”
Huawei has had a very fruitful partnership with Leica over the years, and it may as well be the one thing to help it survive in the post-Google era. The maker has been known for its excellent photography skills in a while, but with the P40 series, it also focused on improving its video quality.
The Penta-camera on the back of the P40 Pro+ is, of course, the star of the show, and it will be the Pro+ key selling feature. It sounds nothing short of amazing. You get a 50MP primary and a 40MP ultrawide shooters, then there is an 8MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom and another 8MP tele with the whooping 10x optical zoom thanks to a periscopic lens. The fifth shooter is a ToF one to help the autofocus, portraits, and some of the more advanced video modes.
Besides the cameras, the Huawei P40 Pro+ has all the high-end flagship specifications you’d expect. That includes the Kirin 990 5G SoC, a 4 layer SuperCool system, 3D graphene film, and a super-thin Vapor Chamber cooling system. It has a 6.5-inch 90Hz display, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, a 4,200mAh battery, 40W fast charging, and Android 10. What it doesn’t have, however, is Google Play Services.
The HUAWEI P40 Pro+ is running on the latest operating system, EMUI 10.1. It has all the new features that the OS brings to the market allowing for seamless connectivity. The HUAWEI MeeTime is also included which supports the highest video quality.
